MANY WORKING AUSTRALIANS take their superannuation rights for granted, but until the social revolution in the 1980s, superannuation was, for many, a privilege rather than a right. Back then, union leaders and employers established a number of industry super funds – amongst these were the predecessors of AustralianSuper.
Today, AustralianSuper is the 20th largest pension fund globally1. It uses its size to access better investment opportunities around the world and keep costs low. It is one of the top performing funds in Australia2 over the long term. “As a profit-for-member fund, our brand reflects our unwavering focus on doing what’s best for members,” says Rose Kerlin, Chief Member Officer. “This has led to us becoming the largest fund in Australia, investing $274 billion (as of 31 December 2022) of over 3 million members’ retirement savings. AustralianSuper is driven by its purpose to help members achieve their financial position in retirement. Over 1200 members join AustralianSuper every day, which is testament to the trust Australians place in us and our products.”
